European survey on the administrative costs of producing statistics on intra-EU trade in goods (Intrastat) – (15/07/05 - 30/09/05)

Summary In recent years the issue of better regulation and in particular, the issue of administrative costs on enterprises has gained increasing attention internationally, at EU level and in the Member States.

The European Commission and its statistical office, Eurostat, are therefore increasing their efforts to measure and better manage the administrative costs caused by European legislation.

The system known as Intrastat was devised to collect statistics on intra-Community trade. Developed by Eurostat and operational since 1 January 1993, Intrastat involves collecting information directly from businesses on a monthly basis. Companies exceeding a certain amount of trade in goods within the European Union are liable for Intrastat declarations.

Consultation on Workplace Diversity and Anti-Discrimination (14/06/2005 – 15/07/2005)

Summary

Anti-discrimination and workplace diversity policy is important to the business community in general and has a direct impact on many facets of how companies operate – workforce recruitment, training, dismissal, market sales, business reputation and performance, etc. Legislation adopted at European level in 2000 already outlaws discrimination in employment and occupation. Workplace Diversity within companies is associated with policies designed to recruit, retain, and develop employees from diverse social groups. This consultation focuses on how companies regard diversity in terms of racial and ethnic background, disability, age, religion or belief and sexual orientation. It does not include diversity solely in terms of gender equality, as this is covered in earlier research.

EBTP Questionnaire for consultation on regulatory quality (25/05/2005 - 31/12/2005)

Summary

The European Union and its Member States are committed to improving the quality of the regulatory environment within which businesses operate in particular by removing regulatory obstacles to doing business and by keeping compliance costs as low as possible. Inevitably, every piece of legislation carries some compliance costs. These costs can be divided into different types of costs and for the sake of this questionnaire we make a distinction between regulatory costs, on the one hand, and administrative costs, on the other. Regulatory costs occur when regulation requires business to make one-off investments, for example, to install filters to meet higher environmental standards or the need to provide protective gear and training to staff to meet health and safety standards. Administrative costs are costs arising from reporting obligations, such as the provision of statistics and other form-filling. The aim of this short questionnaire is to get your view as a business operating in Europe on progress already made and to receive guidance from you as an EBTP member on particular areas where there is most scope for improvements and where the Commission should focus on.
